Mushy tip that scratches and sprays ink when I write, even with a light touch. Also got ink all over my fingers somehow. Maybe a defective pen? I wonder since everyone else seems to love this pen. I threw mine away!

I have some kind of compulsion to carry, with me at all times/in my purse, a mini version of my office. Well: it all fits in here. My little stapler, my little chocolate donut tape dispenser, tons of pens and pencils, a big fat Staedtler highliter, an eraser, extra ink cartridges, the cool little fold-up scissors shaped like a pen that I bought here at Jet-Pens, some sticky-notes and address labels and probably a few things I've forgotten to mention. All in a nice bright orange little package that drops right into my messenger bag style purse. Easy to see, easy to find and satisfies the geek in me that needs to have all my stuff right at hand.

For the past year or so I have been a great fan of Pilot Precise V5 RT pens: loved the ink flow and needle tip. BUT, I RIPPED through them. One day I ended up throwing out 4 pens because they all went empty the same day. I couldn't justify the refill cost, vs simply buying new pens, which really bothered me.
Well, my search is over. The Rotring Rapidograph 0.5mm is the pen I was searching for. Lays down nice dark black ink as I write (which is all I do, I don't draw), feels great in the hand, and the refills are economical. I can get over that I have to take the cap off (vs. just click the retractable Pilot Precise V5).
I have a few more V5's to use up, but this is my new favorite for writing up my patient records. I love my Kaweco fountain pen for correspondence and things I want to have a more personal flare, but this is my new "workhorse".

Love my Kaweco pen but not really loving this ink. Too blue and not saturated enough to make me happy. I like blue ink; I like black ink: thought I would like blue-black ink, but not so much.
Everything I have written with this looks sort of old, faded, and not so easy to read. Just no "life" to this color.

Just received the pen...
August 12, 2011
Just received the pen today (super fast service, as usual, kudos): this is one slick looking pen and it feels great in the hand. I can't believe how small it is when capped and yet how nicely balanced and "full sized" it feels when posted.
The fine nib is not scratchy AT ALL and the ink flow is quite smooth.

I ordered the silver and love the contrast of the black carbon panels and the subtle but way cool font that says "Kaweco AC Sport".

So far, I think I am in love.
My only regret is that I only ordered one color of ink (and that I am such a pen geek).
